Preparation Instructions

Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).

Step 2.

In a large bowl, combine flour and cream of tartar. Blend in butter, eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice (or vinegar). Mix until dough forms.

Step 3.

Separate the dough into four portions, three pieces for the bottom layers and one piece for the top layer of the cake. Cover the remainder with a damp cloth to prevent it from drying out.

Step 4.

Roll out dough from 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick and cut out as many round cakes with a cookie cutter as possible. Keep them on a tin-lined baking sheet.

Step 5.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. Take it out of the oven and cool on a wire rack.

Step 6.

While the bottom layers are baking, you can prepare the coconut topping. Mix 1-1/2 cups sugar and 10 tablespoons of water in a medium bowl. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Then bring the mixture to boil. Remove from heat and add coconut. Stir until it is well coated with syrup; set aside.

Step 7.

To make the frosting, cream together 1-1/2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup butter or margarine in a large bowl until it is fluffy and light yellow. Add the extract, lemon juice, and water.

Step 8.

Take 2 cake layers and spread a thin layer of frosting onto each one. Stack the layers and spread on top a thick layer of frosting. Repeat for the second layer.

Step 9.

Using a sharp knife, slice through coconut topping and garnish the cake.

Sugar Cookie Cake Recipe will taste even better if you refrigerate it overnight before serving.


• I prefer to use a cake maker machine to mix the ingredients and make the cake. The machine will make sure that the ingredients are mixed uniformly. But you can also do this by hand.

• I also used lemon juice as a substitute for vinegar in this recipe. Don’t be afraid to substitute these two items; it may result in different textures but is not inferior to the original recipe.

• You can also prepare 2 vanilla or chocolate cheesecake using this basic cookie recipe.
